Getting the Best Bid and Team for Your Construction Project

We have won bids and overseen projects ranging from $2 million to $125 million, and understand how the bidding process works and ways to make it successful for all parties involved. We are well versed in all AIA CMa contracts and have the ability to estimate, bid, and manage multiple prime contracts.

For small and big projects, our approach to Construction Management is to be open, fair, and efficient. When we bid on a project, all numbers are on the table to keep everyone accountable to an accurate scope.

A Process Designed for Financial Flexibility, Accountability, and Success

  • Champion Craft Brewery
  • JCC Locker Room Renovations
  • The Joint Chiropractic

For all of our Construction Management projects we break the large projects into small chunks to be individually priced. This gives us many more options for pricing and flexibility for meeting your needs. This method also provides us with more financial accountability because we can keep an eye on the smallest of details that might get lost otherwise.

Dedicated Team of Experts

When you work with us to manage your construction project, you’ll quickly see how our experience in other services will make your project easier to complete. While other companies only perform certain aspects of construction, we do it all from design, building, planning, and scheduling.

For your project, we will assign a dedicated planner to coordinate all the moving pieces and aspects of the project. Meaning, despite how large or small your project is, you will only have one point of contact.
